Australian Music Academy at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Music Vault
The Australian Music Vault Academy is four days of creative music and arts workshops for people aged 14 – 18, with a range of talented mentors. The program is supported by APRA AMCOS, Major Partner of the Australian Music Vault, who are committed to fostering the next generation of music creators. The Australian Music Vault Academy gives participants the opportunity to join Australian artists experienced in a variety of music industry-related disciplines for a variety of skill-expanding workshops at The Channel.
Attendees will participate in a selection of arts workshops, including song writing with writer/producer Anna Laverty (Meg Mac, Paul Dempsey, Courtney Barnett) and producer/DJ KLP (triple J), Ableton workshops with artist/producer Alice Ivy, lyric writing with hip-hop artist Mantra, VJing with visual artist Rose Staff, band photography with Warwick Baker, and DJing with Mz Rizk. Participants will also have the opportunity to use The Channel’s recording studio to learn to record their own music.
On Tuesday 19 December, the Australian Music Vault opened its doors in celebration of Australian contemporary music with patrons Kylie Minogue, Tina Arena, Michael Gudinski and Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum. Open daily and featuring a free permanent exhibition, digital and interactive experiences and an extensive learning program, the Australian Music Vault charts the story of contemporary Australian music from the 1950s until today. It showcases the iconic people, events and places that define Australian music in a purpose-built exhibition space within Arts Centre Melbourne’s Theatres Building in St Kilda Road, Melbourne.
The Australian Music Vault Learning Program is a key component of the exhibition, consisting of a schools program and a public program. The learning program supports creatives in their artistic practice, creating a supportive environment through discussion, meetups and workshops where they can share stories, experiences and inspirations. The Australian Music Vault Learning Program invites everyone to deepen their connection with, and contribute to, the Australian music story.
